Don't feel bad. There is no question of not helping. Everybody in this forum is ready to help you to learn. Eric, Andy, Dexer, Marcy, Reed....
& of course myself(with a limited skill). How many harps you have is also not at all a factor in beginner stage. While playing, if you want to
rectify your mistakes, can simply take the help of audio/video recording without amp.
OK....let it be started with song of the Month-1. There are some easy song tabs. Pick up one as deem fit for you, do practice part by part,
record, upload and ask criticism.
Again telling you, don't get upset. I think you are the youngest member among us. We all are with you.
Please criticize my song of the month "Summertime" and let me know your "You Tube" link. I missed it.
Listened your song of the month yesterday. Beautiful.....beautiful....and beautiful. Moreover the song played in correct note,
At least in my ear and which we expect from a good teacher.
In my opinion, it is closer to Rock not the Pop. Overall very good. Congratulations.
Suzuki Manjhi is a very good top line harp. I have been playing my two Manji(C & D) since last two years.
Though I don't know bending in proper manner, but still I am practicing bending in Manjhi. It is easy
to bend and one of the best toned harp. If you haven't you can have a Suzuki Olive also in future.
Secondly, listened your song of the month yesterday. Awesome sound and well played Dex. It is
enough to forget your past bad memories.
This is a great idea! When does it start and who is going to monitor it and give us the song to learn?
I have been out of the loop, what are the songs of the month?
Soon as you identify an area for development etc, ask questions so we know how to help. Enjoy the early stages.
Hi Keith,let me know how you get on with your new harmonica.From what I have heard,it is said that the Swan Chromatics have improved dramatically.If I can help you anymore,just let me know.Keep puffing Eric33.
I would like to play too.
I'm a relative who makes noise with all types of harmonicas. And there is a Paddy Richter on the way now too.
Hopefully some day my noises will be similar to music, I'll know when my wife opens the door to the room I'm practicing in instead of shuts it
Summertime in Key-A 4th position. Task for month-1. Seek criticism.
Hi Eric, I had been waiting for my Swan 1040 Pro to arrive, so hadn't actually tried playing it yet.
(I love the CX12, but it is a bit too loud for me to learn/practice on. )
Hi Keith, I apologise for not entering the title for this music.I bet you had some fun figuring it out.Anyway it was "Midnight in Moscow" Keep puffing Eric.33.
Thanks, Keith. So true! That does make practice a lot more fun.
Nicely played. It probably helps having your own personal backing as well.
I have a diatonic. It is a Hohner Marine Band Key of C. Looks like I may need to get a key of A and a key of G too, if I get good enough on my guitar to play both at the same time.
I used to have a few of them, including a chromatic, but they got losy somewhere when i divorced in 1994. Wish I still had them, especially the chromatic. My grandfather gace it to me, so has some sentimental value.
Going to have my clarinet cleaned up, re-padded and corked, and get back into that too. been 45 years since I last played it in high school. I should pick it up pretty fast though. I have been invited to play with the beginning band at the school I work at, which will help a lot.
